Let’s hope Harry Reid doesn’t blink. I’m just sorry he didn’t decide to try similar aggressive tactics before the elections; some evidence that Democrats in Washington were prepared to go to the mat for their beliefs might have mobilized a few more voters. As it is, I’m beginning to look forward to the next couple of years, which should be full of amusement as the relatively sane and Teahadist wings of the GOP confront each another, and reality.
Of course, when Jon Kyl (R-Asininity) says it’s “impossible” to get through Reid’s agenda, he doesn’t mean that it’s impossible in fact, only that he and his friends mean to make it impossible. And I’m happy to let the country judge which side is “disrespecting” (can’t you just see Kyl in hip-hop gear?) the Senate and the Christmas season.
